According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there is misuse seen in approximately 73% of all child safety seats in use. According to the CDC over 1200 deaths and approximately 171,000 injuries occur yearly to children 14 and under. The Van Buren Township Public Safety Department is committed to the safety of the children in our community and currently has officers specially trained in the inspection of child restraint systems.
